The Marshall Report: Henderson named MVP
Former Ole Miss basketball star Marshall Henderson has picked up where he left off–draining three-pointers from all over the basketball court. Now, however, he is doing so in Morocco!
Last week, we told you how Henderson recently signed an 8-month contract to play in Doha, Qatar for Al-Rayyan, the top club team in the Qatar League.

This week, Marshall and his team just completed play in the Arabic Cup held in Morocco. In the championship game, Henderson’s Al-Rayyan team played the host team in front of a packed house.
Marshall did what Marshall has done so many times before….he hit three-pointers and simply could not be stopped. The former Rebel guard hit NINE three-pointers, to be exact!
En route to winning the game, 85-78, Henderson was named the Most Valuable Player of the Tournament.
After the game, Henderson said:
“It was crazy! The fans came on the court and wanted my jersey off my back.”
The 6’2” Henderson ended his career at Ole Miss with a 3-pointer in an SEC-record 66-straight games—and it looks like he has now started a new streak in the professional ranks!
Hotty Toddy and congratulations to Marshall for being the MVP!
